Big Bag
Type C


FIBCs Type C are made of conductive fabric containing interconnected conductive fibres or filament. Grounding resistance from any point of the big bag must be less than 108 OHM. In the FIBCs Type C there won’t be any spreading electric charge. To prevent destroying charges, FIBC Type C must be correctly grounded during filling and emptying phases.

Use of different types of FIBC

Bulk product in FIBC Surroundings
MIE of dust3 Non-flamable atmosphere Dust zones 21-22b
(1 000 mJ ≥ MIE > 3 mJ)a
MIE of dust3
MIE > 1000mJ A, B, C, D B, C, D C, Dc
1000mJ ≥ MIE > 3mJ B, C, D B, C, D C, Dc
MIE ≤ 3mJd C, D C, D C, Dc

NOTE 1: Additional precautions are usually necessary when a flammable gas or vapour atmosphere is present inside the FIBC, e.g. in the case of solvent wet powders.

NOTE 2 Non-flammable atmosphere includes dusts having a MIE > 1 000 mJ.
